Teams for the Orioles to defeat???[edit]

That joke didn't make much sense to me, as the Ravens actually win things some times and the Orioles mostly exist to pad the Yankees' and Red Sox's records. (talk) 14:16, 2 June 2015 (UTC)

image problem?[edit]

There seems to be a serious problem with the way the gif is displayed.:--Remarcsd 21:01, 23 September 2007 (EDT)

Can you describe the problem? It looks fine to me. humanbe in 21:05, 23 September 2007 (EDT)
The basic outline is there, but the image is undecipherable and has about 200 dots scattered upon it and another 200 around the outside of the image. The image looks lke it has been pushed up and left about a millimetre or so, so that the upper left circunference is normal while the bottom right circumference is fat--as if it had smudged. The, I assume, Capitol in the middle of the image is reasonably clear, but not enough to get a lot of detail. When I looked at the image from the 'recent changes' page, after you uploaded it, it displayed fine.:--Remarcsd 21:19, 23 September 2007 (EDT)
Further info. What I thought was the Maryland image in the recent changes page was actually the Maine image you uploaded earlier today. The ME image displays clearly, whereas the MA image on this page is still indecipherable. I can view the MA image in the image namespace ok, it just does not display on the Maryland page. Hope all this makes sense:--Remarcsd 23:29, 23 September 2007 (EDT)

Works for me! Susantalk to me 21:08, 23 September 2007 (EDT)

Still works fine for me, too. I wonder what the glitch is? Try ctrl-shift-r yet? humanbe in 03:18, 24 September 2007 (EDT)
Not sure what ctrl-shift-r is supposed to do (reload the cache?) but i tried it to no avail. I loaded the image into my user page and it still displayed as it does here. I then removed the "thumb" mark-up and it displayed ok but just a a single coin with no box etc. which is probably normal. A thought occurs that it may be my browser, I am still using Netscape 7 on both my work computer and home one, both of which display the image in the corrupted way.
I just tried a little experiment. I copied the Maine image you loaded earlier today into my user page and it displays ok in both raw and thumb formats. Definitely one for the boffins in the back office:--Remarcsd 04:07, 24 September 2007 (EDT)
Interesting. N7 ought to be fine I'd think, but who knows? Maybe some plug-in messed it up on you? So you have edited and resaved the article a couple of times, or just preveiwed it? Not that I can see how that would alter anything. humanbe in 16:28, 24 September 2007 (EDT)


Is the fuehrer thing a joke? I was tempted to believe it was a troll and edit it out. (talk) 06:15, 21 January 2013 (UTC)

Is joke agbout how Republicans often see Democratic executives, when this is largely untrue. 32℉uzzy; 0℃atPotato (talk/stalk) 02:58, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

State Song[edit]

As of 2021, Maryland now has no state song, so this is out of date — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs
